Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words are taken from Thirteen Cool Words:

1. Obsequious- full of or exhibiting servile compliance; fawning.

2. Miasmic- A noxious atmosphere or influence.

3. Cantankerous- bad tempered, argumentative, uncooperative.


  1. Hi Mary Ann,

    The only one of your words that I didn't know, was miasmic, but that's a great one to throw into a conversation sometime!

    I know plenty of obsequious people and have often been accused of being cantankerous myself, usually quite correctly, by my long suffering husband!

    Great sounding words when you see them all together like that.


  2. I know cantankerous - it's a great word! Thanks for playing along today!

  3. I knew cantankerous...the other two, I've heard them before but didn't know the precise meanings. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Fiction-books- A great reply.

    Bermudaonion- You're welcome.

    Kelly- You too.

  5. Those are great choices! Cantankerous is one of my favorite words. :)
